Best Animal-Attraction Encounters - 2001
An Adult Wild Night
The Denver Zoo
An offshoot of the zoo's wildly popular Bunk with the Beasts overnight programs for kids and families, this slumber party is just what it's billed to be -- a campout in the Gates Conservation Center for the 21-and-older set, featuring a guided walk through the zoo after hours (during which you'll observe a variety of nocturnal animals, human and otherwise, up close and personal), a couple of meals and a late-night snack (please avoid nibbling your next-door neighbor) and another behind-the-scenes tour in the morning. Singles are encouraged to sign up, though couples are welcome. The next adult night is in June; early signup is a must.
